Random Thoughts on a Rainy Day

It has been raining here for 3 days and I am totally over it. I am a teacher. We pray for snow (yay for snow days!), but never for rain. So, today I decided to pretend all that rain was snow and take me a snow day :-) Really, I stayed home with The Boy who is still feeling sickly from having his wisdom teeth taken out.

Have I told you I am really close to my mother?? Really close in every sense...she lives in the neighborhood right behind me. She calls me any time she sees my car still parked in the driveway on her way to work (I leave an hour earlier than her) to ask me why I am not at work. I am 41 years old and still feel like I can't get away with skipping school.

I am two weeks post op. I didn't lose any weight this week. I am trying not to beat myself up over this since I am completely on regular food now. I have read where some people actually gain a little when they are back on regular food, but it is still disappointing when I don't see the scale move.

I don't have class this week since my class is on a Thursday....woot, woot! Being the procrastinator that I am , I will not complete the 5 journal article reviews that will be due next week. Rather, I will wait until the day before and stress and complain about doing it all in one day....because that's how I roll.

That's all my random thoughts for the day. Toodles.

I'll be 41 in a few weeks and my Mom (& Dad) lives in my neighborhood, too. I can see their house from my back porch. Luckily, she is closer to the entrance than I am, so she doesn't drive by often. She still calls everyday, though.

Don't worry about no loss. I had the same thing with a couple LB gain once I was back on food. It wasn't until about 3 months after surgery and getting a few fills that I started to lose. Hang in there.

This is the time to heal, don't worry about the weight, it will come off. Enjoy your day off!

Glad you took the day off---you deserve it. And I had to laugh about your mom...mine does the same thing. Too close still beats too distant, from what friends tell me. Anyway, I'm glad people are telling you not to worry about the weigh-in this week. I just got my surgery date and will be in your shoes soon, learning the ropes as a bandster! You're doing great...a day at a time!

Totally agree with Tessie Rose's comment. It will happen but you got to do some healing.

You are healing this time is for that not for losing. I know it is so hard cause you want it now but it will come.

I am very close to my mother, and I speak to her everyday, I cannot imagine it any other way. She will be 76 on 12-22 and I worry that I will lose her.

Cherish your mom and the fact that you live so close to one another, it is truly priceless.

Glad you took a day for yourself yesterday, it'll really put you in a more productive mindset after the holidays.

Speaking of, happy early Thanksgiving! :)
